Small container industry parts and components including DEF spouts

Con-Tech procurement outsourcing provides components and parts as well as the FreezePro™ Frost Protection Systems to the small container industry. A significant product, Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) Spoutsimproves dispensing time for DEF additives and eliminates the need for vented jugs. Con-Tech’s small container DEF spouts bring the small container industry many significant features including easy attachment to the bottleneck, smooth fluid flow, no leaks or spillage during dispensing and availability in different colors.

Standard, Vented And Collapsible DEF Spouts Available

Con-Tech DEF spouts are offered in standardvented or collapsible DEF spout versions. Con-Tech DEF spouts can be used to dispense DEF typically from 1-gallon, 2-gallon, 2.5-gallon, and 5-gallon jugs and are available in 38mm, 45mm, and 63mm sizes.

Con-Tech responded to the needs of the DEF marketplace and began to offer DEF spouts. DEF is a mixture of synthetic, high-purity, automotive-grade urea and deionized water. DEF is clear, nontoxic, nonflammable, non-explosive, and generally nonhazardous. DEF was developed after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) began to require lower emissions in response to the major amendments to the Clean Air Act. In 2008, the EPA mandated all three-quarter-ton and larger trucks have diesel particulate filters installed. Then in 2010, the EPA required that medium and heavy-duty vehicles reduce engine emissions.Significantly, this EPA ruling required diesel engines to use DEF to reduce harmful emissions and satisfy the mandates of the Clean Air Act. Thus, a strong new DEF market was created in the United States.

DEF is safe to handle but should be stored in clean, well-ventilated areas away from direct sun. DEF can access single and bulk use dispensers as well as with DEF pumps in some locations. The DEF should meet ISO purity standards to ensure it meets the goal of protecting the environment.

As diesel engine trucks required DEF fluid on an ongoing basis, commercial fuel services outlets throughout the country began to sell DEF in jugs. When the need for different size jugs emerged, a market for DEF spouts was born. Recent market surveys and industry leaders indicate that the DEF spout and accessories market will continue to grow in the next five years. Con-Tech is excited to be working with suppliers and consumers of this growing market.

Diesel Exhaust Fluid is a mixture of 32.5% synthetic, high-purity, automotive-grade urea and 67.5% deionized water. DEF is injected into selective catalytic reduction diesel engines in buses, cars, vans, agricultural and off-road vehicles.

It enhances performance by approximately 5% and transforms harmful nitrogen oxide emissions into harmless nitrogen and water. DEF is clear, non-toxic, nonflammable, non-explosive, and generally nonhazardous but needs to be filled into a dedicated DEF tank. 

Con-Tech supplies DEF spouts to dispense Diesel Exhaust Fluid additives from containers. Our spouts are offered in standard, vented or collapsible versions and used to dispense diesel exhaust fluid additives typically from 1-gallon, 2-gallon, 2.5-gallon, and 5-gallon jugs.
